Attendance at Fitzharrys is at record levels because students enjoy coming to school. We want to encourage students to aim for 100% attendance as research shows there is a clear link between excellent attendance and high achievement, and good attendance will be a basic expectation for all our students in their future careers. The school’s Attendance Diamond and weekly monitoring help each student to aspire to their very best attendance.
We work hard to recognise good attendance, with rewards given to students at the end of each full term to celebrate the commitment and determination that comes with 100% attendance.
All absences will detract from a student's 100% attendance record but we do understand that occasionally students must have time away from school in cases such as illness, medical appointments or bereavement. We recognise 100% attendance at achievement assemblies not only at the end of the year, but after each full term; winter, spring and summer.
